Malvern College | Entrance Tests – CAT4
To join in Year 9, your child will be asked to complete an English paper and an online assessment called the Cognitive Abilities Test (CAT4), which assesses Verbal, Non-Verbal, Spatial and Quantitative Reasoning. Here’s a brief introduction to the four subjects covered in this online exam:
The Verbal Reasoning part of the CAT4 test requires your child to solve problems using words. They will be asked questions based on identifying verbal similarities and analogies.
The Non-Verbal Reasoning part of the CAT4 test requires your child to solve problems using shapes and patterns, rather than with words. They will be asked questions based on matrices and identifying similarities.
The Spatial Reasoning part of the CAT4 test assesses your child’s ability to identify shapes and how they change. They will be asked questions based on recognising target shapes or visualising how unfolded pieces of paper will look.
The Quantitative Reasoning part of the CAT4 test assesses your child’s ability to solve problems using numbers. They will be asked questions based on sequences and relationships between numbers.
